Smooth Moving


I've been experimenting with making healthy smoothies for myself and my family. One of the things that's been keeping me busy is preparing tons of fresh vegetables for the freezer. I bought a huge bag of carrots and heard that you could grow the tops in water. So, I tried it! It works! I also tossed an avocado pit in there, just for good measure.

Question for anyone who has done vegetable/fruit smoothies (no milk - lactose intolerant!): do you cook your vegetables first to make them easier on your digestive system?

  2. Heather,
    It's funny you should ask about smoothies today. I'm no expert, but my dear friend Gail also blogged about veggie smoothies today and she doesn't use dairy in hers. She has lots of recipies and is all about sharing. Here's her blog: http://arohaphotography.com/ She's also LDS, lives in San Jose, is from New Zealand is is one of the kindest and most creative and capable people I know. I'm sure she'd love to trade smoothie secrets with you :) Hope this helps, Leah aka ninjapony

  3. Nope to cooking veggies here in Castro Valley, CA. We prefer the fresh taste. We do a lot of carrots with apples, oranges and pears. Haven't tried any other veggies in our smoothies.
